Got mine set at 10 minutes. Don't want the cold and heat going off and on too much and fighting against each other.

Even though mine says STC-1000 on the front i'm thinking it's a knock off. I see pictures of others that has the degree symbol and "C" for Celsius but mine doesn't show that. Not a big deal and it's working fine but makes me wonder now.

As long as it works it should be fine I noticed earlier in the thread there is another post with a controller without the c so who knows

I took a flash light to the screen and I can see the degree symbol and the "C" but it's not lit up. Maybe I got a version 1 or something. No worries it's doing what It's supposed to do.

Just curious why you did not use one outlet for both heat and cool and the other for accessories (I use my extra plug for scale, vacuum sealer, etc).
